This is the smallest of the Wilesco range of static engines. It is candle powered and steams extremely well. It also doubles as a great table top ornament as well.
Ministeam Beam Engine
This is a new addition to my collection. The Ministeam double acting Beam Engine is produced by the German manufacturer Lutz Hielscher from Wuppertal. It is built from stainless steel, brass and glass for the boiler and it's so small it is lost when sitting in the palm of my hand! It's estimated running time is five minutes on one boiler filling.
